I bought a 2011 26BH (pic heavy)

I am married with two young children. I have always loved camping but it was very uncomfortable and seemed not worth the effort using the truck box camper i have had for many years, straight up not enough room for everyone and everything.

After aborting a long weekend trip after one night I decided it was time to improve our situation. I did quite a bit of research and shopping around it turned out that the best trailer for us and the best deal was at the closest dealer to my house.

The next long weekend we went out and didn't want to come back. Here are a few pictures from our first trip.

This is our old camper

Here is the TT in front of the house getting loaded up.

This is the family.

We had quite a few people with us and had to break out a second fire pit to fit everyone.

I spent one of the days fishing with my son and my dad.

The view at night was amazing. one side of the sky was the Milky Way.

The other was the northern lights.

Here is the Milky Way over our trailer

I am looking forward to many more trips in this wonderful trailer!

Great Photos!

How did you take the sky photos they are to say the least amazing. Love your son wiht the fish as well. Everyone needs to take kids fishing. I live in AZ where less than 10% of the metro Phoneix kids have been out of the county they live in.

We jsut moved up from our second pop up to a 26RLS. Quite a paradyme shift. Lots more fun on rainy trips.
